Attenborough's Life in Colour
The natural world is full of colours. For us, they are a source of beauty, but for animals they are a tool for survival. David Attenborough reveals the extraordinary ways in which animals use colour: to win a mate, to fight off rivals and to warn enemies. In India, peacocks dazzle females with magnificent tail feathers; a tiny hummingbird in the deserts of North America unfurls his spectacular headdress as he dances for a mate; and in the darkness of a rainforest, powerful mandrill baboons signal their status with red and blue face masks, while tiny frogs warn of deadly poisons with brilliant colours.
A Perfect Planet
Perfect Planet ia a unique fusion of blue chip natural history and earth sciences explaining how the living planet operates. This five part series shows how the forces of nature - weather, ocean currents, solar energy and volcanoes - drive, shape and support Earth's great diversity of life.
The ambitious four-year project has been filmed in 50 countries across all the continents of the world, with over 600 members of crew capturing more than three and a half thousand filming days, and focuses on the breadth of the diversity of habitats around the world, from the remote Arctic wilderness and mysterious deep oceans to the vast landscapes of Africa and diverse jungles of South America.
Seven Worlds, One Planet
Narrated by Emmy®-winner Sir David Attenborough, Seven Worlds, One Planet is a brand new ambitious seven-part landmark nature docu-series.

Millions of years ago incredible forces ripped apart the Earth's crust creating seven extraordinary continents.
This series will reveal how each distinct continent has shaped the unique animal life found there. We will discover why Australasia is full of peculiar and venomous wildlife; why North America is a land of opportunity where pioneers succeed; and what the consequences are for life racing to compete on the richest of all continents, South America.
Each episode of Dynasty follows individual animals - lions, hunting dogs, chimpanzees, tigers, and emperor penguins - at the most critical period in their lives.

The series features a balance of everyday European invertebrates such as the wolf spider and housefly and more exotic varieties such as the redback spider of Australia and venomous centipedes of the Amazon.
